Talking Pictures - To Make or To Break - Do Critics Matter? No classification required
Can a critic really ‘make' a film? Can someone's opinion really destroy a potential cinematic success, even before it hits the screen? Does the loudest opinion matter most, and are there some films that are truly ‘critic-proof'? Tom Ryan talks to the Hollywood Reporter's David Rooney, Margaret Pomeranz (ABC's At the Movies), Karl Quinn (National Film Editor, The Age), Joel Pearlman (Managing Director, Roadshow Films) and revered Australian director Fred Schepisi (The Eye of the Storm, MIFF 2011).
